So, as Caplock proposed, and as I volunteered to take initiative on (to no one's objection), this is the official Adopt-a-Noob Program thread for Mafia (it's experimental at this stage). So, here's how I propose it to work. To those who are new to mafia (or fairly inexperienced), please put your name below under "Protegee." To those who ARE experience and want to be a noob's mentor, please put your name below under "Mentor."

As for how it'll run, I propose that our protegee's will play in beginner games, like normal. The mentors, on the other hand, will NOT play in the game, but WILL be included in their protegee's role PM to advise (note: they WILL be included in the mafia PM, but only to see what is being said. Advice should be given in the role PM only.) I will also set up a general advice PM between mentor and protegee outside of any beginner games.

It's important to note that this program will imply that if a player wants a mentor, that they'll only get advice in the beginner games. As well, this also implies that a mentor will NOT play in the beginner games, but be available to help.

Mentors must be courteous, polite, etc. to their protegee (obviously). Remember, we were all noobs once.

Now, if you'd like to participate in this experimental program, affix your name below. If you have ANY comments or suggestions, please give them.

I don't think the Mentor's knowing who the mafia are is a good idea. They could let something slip to their protege accidentally.

No: they'd be included in the mafia PM IF their protegee is mafia; NOT if they aren't.

NOTE: I kind of set this up without conferring with bluesteel first (he's the overseer of the beginner games)--I just messaged him now to see if he approves

I'm gonna laugh when this basically becomes Mentor-vs-Mentor. Maybe rather than integrate it throughout all the BGs, just in a round or so. Like, have it be x.3 with theme, roles and mentor, and x.4 be without mentor. After x.4, they officially "graduate" Blue's Noob Academy. We should make some list of "graduated" players so that in sign-ups, you always know who has been through all the games. You could even have mods designate "No Noob" games at their discretion, link the list, and noobs would know to sit out on that particular game.

noobs might just not be inclined to come in this thread. We could consider posting this list in the sign up threads for the beginner games.

I think this seems fair. I'll talk to blue about these ideas.

Meh, I'll sign up, but not to any of the already signed up mentor, becuase I don't want to have to choose.

Noobs can sign up here for the .2 and .3 games for a mentor. However, for .1, no mentors. I skipped the roleless .1 game this time, and it didn't turn out well. Some noobs got overwhelmed with the number of rules and roles. Gotta keep it simple for .1 so they can learn the basic stuff first.

Okay. Now, would anyone care to take MasterKage under his/her wing?

I'm kind of new to mafia so would anybody like to mentor me? I'll try to avoid politics in the games forum :).

Not sure if anyone wants me as a mentor (last person I would consider my protege would be F-16 and he isn't turning out so well...) but if you do I'll do it.

Teaching to debate is much harder and more time consuming than learning to play mafia.

Since MasterKage asked first and no one seems to have seized him, I'll take him as my protege.
